Unfortunately, Firefox is difficult to script in AutoIt, because AutoIt can't read many control IDs in Firefox. The thought occurred to me to have it send the TAB key until the status bar displayed the correct URL, but AutoIt can't even read the status bar for Firefox.

My suggestion? Look into using the IE.au3 UDF for any web automation.
